Pat Salvati is not exactly a new face in the Wyckoff area. The District’s new Business Administrator was the Assistant Business Administrator at Ramapo-Indian Hills from 2006 to 2012.
“It’s nice to be back in the FLOW District,” she says, after spending the last four years as the Business Administrator first at Little Falls and then in River Edge. “I look forward to joining the administrative team here,” she says. “It has been very welcoming so far. I feel at home already.”
Salvati arrived in December to replace Alan Reiffe, who retired after 15 years as Business Administrator. She credits Reiffe with taking time during the two months prior to his retirement to meet with her and implement a smooth transition. They also had four days of overlap in the District Office before Reiffe’s final day. “I think that helped prepare me well,” says Salvati, adding: “I will continue to provide Wyckoff with the strong financial leadership it’s been accustomed to.”
The Business Administrator, who is also the Secretary of the Board of Education, is in charge of the operations of the District. This means everything from keeping Board minutes, to developing budgets, to doing financial analyses, handling day-to-day financial management, and ensuring compliance with State rules and regulations. Buildings and grounds, transportation, purchasing, and insurance are also among her many duties.
Salvati says she is happy to have the opportunity to build upon what Wyckoff already has in place. “I look forward to supporting our excellent educational program,” she adds.
